A case report from the UK demonstrates the potential benefits of acupuncture in the treatment of phantom limb pain. A man suffering from phantom limb pain and sensation, following an above-elbow arm amputation, received seven weekly acupuncture sessions on his intact left arm. The treatment resulted in complete relief of the phantom limb pain and considerable improvement of the phantom limb sensation of his right arm.
